We named this yarn after a very important woman in Montana’s state history, Jeannette Rankin. She was the first woman in the country elected to the US Congress in 1916, 4 years before women in our nation were given the right to vote. She was very active in the Suffrage Movement and working for women’s rights. She was a peace activist and was the only member of Congress to vote against war in WWI. When we saw how lovely and graceful this cashmere silk was we immediately thought of Jeannette.
